Social Experiment #1: Dressing Like a Republican


Sometimes in life, it is necessary to step outside one's comfort zone. I decided today was the day. As I was deliberating on outfit choices last night, I put together a skirt and collared shirt combo. Very cute. As soon as I put it on, however, I realized I looked like a flaming conservative republican. Neatly pressed shirt in a conservative color. A khaki "safe" knee-length skirt. Brown peep-toe stilettos. Conservative jewelry. It all looks pretty good. I mean, I'm wearing it right now and I feel fine.

Here is the interesting part: I have been getting compliments all day...from republicans!! They all love my skirt! The shoes are so cute! So I have decided that this is the first of many social experiments involving politically swayed outfits. Stay tuned. Oh, does anyone have a peace sign necklace and bellbottoms I can borrow?

I'm proud to say I was there for the moment you realized you looked like a flaming Republican. Now that I think about it, it's a good thing we had that gun with us too. You could pretend like you're a part of the NRA. Too bad we didn't think of that before.

Wow, that outfit sounds really cute.

Perhaps you should now burn your bra to restore order to the universe.

shout out to the day i wore a long flowy flowery skirt, earthy brown shoes, dangly earrings and my long hair flowing in the wind. that day, i had propositions from at least 5 different people to join greenpeace or their various organizations for stopping global warming. they are so tricky. they word it like, "do you support the environment?" so that when you shake your head and keep walking it looks like you're saying No, i Don't support the environment. i am AGAINST the ENVIRONMENT!!!! down with trees!! down with air!!!! DOWN WITH THE ATMOSPHERE!!!!!!!!!! [COSBY SWEATER!!!]

I think I've seen Lars in that same outfit... but isn't she a democrat? good luck with your social experiments... I'll keep my eyes pealed for the perfect bellbottoms.

Lars is a flaming democrat. And I think Josh is G Dub's adopted son. They're kids are going to be so confused. All 15 of them.

So if that is the case, I'm assuming that she will try to do birth control and he will try to give her skittles so she'll get pregnant? Skittles help everything. I'm already plotting to give the Redhead fertility drugs to ensure the arrival of twins. Eric and Erica will be the coolest twins on the block.
